For any management school, final placements of the graduating batch and their acceptance by the industry is the final verdict. This year, one of the biggest fears looming large was whether the students will stand true to the industry requirements, after having completed the programme almost 60% in an online format. Would the same amount of knowledge, competencies and skills be gained and demonstrated across a digital screen? It was a question that was playing on the minds of the IGTC faculty as well as management team. Through continuous class briefings, assessments, group work, and vivas; no effort was spared to ensure that the students were stretched to develop all the facets required in this ever-changing world: Intelligence, Emotional, Social and Adversity Quotients.
With this preparation, the IGTC team pumped in relentless effort to ensure that the rigorous IGTC learning journey culminated into a sustained career for every IGTCian. It was very important to maintain a transparent, fair and well-communicated process, across the 100 deserving graduating students. Morale and team-spirit had to remain high throughout all the emotional upheavals, not only posed by a tough and closed job market, but also by the severe physical and psychological impact of Covid’s 2nd wave. IGTC Director Radhieka R Mehta anchored the class together with determination, faith and positivity as they underwent a roller-coaster of experiences; a time of acceptances and rejections, failures and improvements, celebrations and disillusionments.
With the placement drive spanning from January to July 2021, IGTC stands proud of its outstanding record of having placed 92% of the students till date. This has only been possible due to an important stakeholder group: the IGTC Alumni, who not only continue to thrive and demonstrate phenomenal progress in the organizations, but also maintain true allegiance to their Alma Mater. One look at the placement statistics below will give you a perspective into the ensuing Joys@IGTC
